I have finally trained mom and dad to be bomb diffusers.
I love falling asleep on mum or dad’s shoulder and after a couple of hours of singing, playing, when I finally fall asleep, they just stay like that for another 10-15 mins to ensure I go into deep sleep. Then they can put me on my bed and slowly back out without making a whiff of a sound. They also speak in hushed tones and muted giggles when I sleep. I am such a good trainer! Just to make it more interesting, I leave squeaky toys around randomly on the floor for them to step on and pour water all around so they slip. 🙂
Found this interesting post on dad’s phone. Thought you could share it with your parents.
A boy with his parents was travelling in their car. Father was driving and son was sitting in the back. Dad was driving this car very carefully because it was quite dear to him.
After a few minutes later, a modern car overtook their car.
Son told Father, “Dad this car went ahead of us, please use accelerator to overtake that car”.
Dad replied smilling, “Son, it is not possible, our car is not capable of going that fast”.
Within a few seconds, another car went ahead of them. Son got annoyed by it and told dad to press accelerator.
Dad replied to son in anger, “You are only seeing cars which are going ahead of us. There are many cars behind us. If we try to catch up with those cars in front of us, we may end up doing damage to our car”.
Son replied nicely, “Dad, you compare me with other smart kids and keep telling me to be like them. If I try to be like them, I might end up hurting myself right! You are only seeing smarter kids than me, but you are not seeing kids who are behind me.”
All parents must read.
